The first celebrities to join the Dancing on Ice - Final Tour have been announced and include three former winners of the ITV show: 2009 winner Ray Quinn, 2010 winner Hayley Tamaddon and 2007 champion Kyran Bracken.

They will be joined by comedian Joe Pasquale, with more celebrities set to be announced soon.

The tour will visit the Capital FM Arena Nottingham on 8th to 10th April and will again give the audiences the chance to see Torvill and Dean perform exclusive mesmerising skating routines.

Olympic gold medal winner Robin Cousins will head the panel of rink-side judges, alongside former professional skaters Karen Barber and Nicky Slater.

The couples will dance live on the ice and the audience can text vote for their favourite celebrity to win. The winning couple will then take to the ice for a magical finale performance of Bolero.

Tickets are on sale now priced from £36.40 and can be booked online at www.capitalfmarena.com/online/dancingonice, on 0843 373 3000 or in person at the Arena.

West End star and singer Ray Quinn said that winning Dancing on Ice was one of the highlights of his career.

“I am thrilled to be able to continue my time on the ice and be part of the tour. I’m buzzing to be able to put on a great show for fantastic audiences around the country,” he said.

Coronation Street actress Hayley Tamaddon said: “Dancing on Ice is a huge part of my life and to be on the final tour is a real honour.

“Having performed on the tour before, I know just how great the arena shows are and the fantastic support you get from the audiences across the UK - see you on the road!”

Former England Rugby captain Kyran Bracken added: “I’ve had the pleasure to appear on the Dancing on Ice tour several times over the years, both as a contestant and a judge, so I’m delighted to be back.

“We’ve got some great routines lined up for the arena audiences and I can’t wait to perform for them again.”
